From a leading international authority on manic-depressive illness--and one of only a handful of women who are full professors of medicine--comes a remarkable personal testimony: the revelation of her own struggle since childhood with manic-depression, and how it has shaped her life.

“An invaluable memoir of manic depression, at once medically knowledgeable, deeply human and beautifully written . . . at times poetic, at times straightforward, always unashamedly honest.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Stands alone in the literature of manic-depression for its bravery, brilliance and beauty.”
—Oliver Sacks
 
“Jamison’s [strength] is in the gutsy way she has made her disease her life’s work and in her brilliant ability to convey its joys and its anguish. . . . Extraordinary.”
Washington Post Book World
 
“The most emotionally moving book I’ve ever read about the emotions.”
—William Safire, The New York Times Magazine
 
“Written with poetic and moving sensitivity . . . a rare and insightful view of mental illness from inside the mind of a trained specialist.”
Time
 
“Enlighting . . . eloquent and profound.”
San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Piercingly honest. . . . Jamison’s literary coming-out is a mark of courage.”
People
 
“Brave, insightful, richly textured and chillingly authentic.”
Boston Globe
 
“A riveting portrayal of a courageous brain alternating between exhilarating highs and numbing lows.”
—James D. Watson, Nobel laureate and author of The Double Helix
 
“In a most intimate and powerful telling, Jamison weaves the personal and professional threads of her life together. . . . [She] brings us inside the disease and helps us understand manic depression. . . . What comes through is a remarkably whole person with the grit to defeat her disease.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“A riveting read. I devoured it at a single sitting and found the book almost as compelling on a second read. . . . An Unquiet Mind may well become a classic. . . . Jamison sets an example of courage.”
—Howard Gardner, Nature
 
“Stunning. . . . [An] exquisite (in both a literary and medical sense) autobiography. . . . This is an important, wonderful book.”
Jackson Clarion Ledger
 
“Extraordinary. . . . An Unquiet Mind must be read.”
The New England Journal of Medicine
 
“A beautiful, funny, original book. Powerfully written, it is a wonderful and important account of mercurial moods and madness. I absolutely love this book.”
—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides
 
“A landmark. . . . The combination of the intensity of her personal life and the intellectual rigor of her professional experience make the book unique. . . . A vibrant and engaging account of the life, love and experience of a woman, a therapist, an academic, and a patient.”
British Medical Journal
 
“Affecting, honest, touching . . . fluid, felt and often lyrical.”
—Will Self, The Observer (London)
 
“Quite astonishing. . . . Cuts through the dead jargon and detached observations of psychiatric theory and practice to create a fiery, passionate, authentic account of the devastation and exaltation, the blindness and illumination of the psychotic experience.”
The Sunday Times (London)
 
“Rises to the poetic and has a mystical touch. . . . A courageous and fascinating book, a moving account of the life of a remarkable woman.”
The Daily Telegraph (London)
 
“Fast-paced, startlingly honest and frequently lyrical. . . . Jamison has] a novelist’s openness of phrase and talent for bringing character alive.”
Scotland on Sunday
 
“Superbly written. . . . A compelling work of literature.”
Independent on Sunday (London)
